Endless Fake Terror Alerts: Fear Based Mind Control
By Paris and Paul Joseph Watson, March 21, 2003

How stupid are we? Quite stupid, obviously. As our country marches to the beat of the pro-war drum, many of us have fallen victim to the propagandized sale of fear to the public. Indeed, the fear of loss of life has quite an effect on people and causes them, as we have seen since the great hoax of 9-11, to go along with things they wouldn’t otherwise go along with. Mind control, you say? Sure. Trauma based mind control is not a conspiracy theory. In fact, it can be observed naturally after people have been subject to distress. The U.S. and British governments know this, and that’s why they issued and continue to issue fabricated terror alerts ever since immediately after September 11th.

We are reminded daily, hourly even, that it’s not a matter of if, but when the next large terrorist attack will occur. Of course, the threat of attack is now used as diversion when the Bush Administration wants to take focus off of the truth. Remember in Florida when a widespread terror alert was issued regarding 3 middle-eastern men on the Interstate? It conveniently coincided with widespread voter fraud in the midterm elections there.

More recently, only hours after Colin Powell was revealed to have been using material plagiarized from decade-old college post-graduate thesis material as the basis of “proof” justifying a war in Iraq did we see yet another alert. With a fresh “Orange” threat level, we were again bombarded with the belief that we are all in imminent danger. Realize, however, that the only reason for this terror alert was to take the focus off Powell's laziness, his unprofessional reliance on a British report that was nothing more than verbatim excerpts from an out-of-date war college paper, which he passed off as the best the American government could produce with it’s supposedly cutting-edge Department of Defense intelligence. Sad as hell, and yet the conservative war-monger-capitialized media continues to endorse the message unchecked.

Understand that if the individuals who staff our intelligence agencies are unable to prevent large-scale terrorist attacks then they should be fired. Has this been the case? Of course not. In fact, since September 11, nobody in a position of authority has been let go - rather, many of them have received raises. And this is not even taking into account the millions of extra funding that has poured in to the FBI and CIA. They have been rewarded for their complicity in 9/11. For more on this please view the video, "Aftermath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11" here.

We have the dichotomy of the government being rewarded for protecting terrorists while at the same time issuing apocalyptic terror alerts. If I called in a hoax bomb threat to a government building I would rightfully be arrested and yet our governments have been doing the exact same thing on a larger scale without retribution.

In May and June of 2002, watered down evidence of the Bush administration’s prior knowledge of the attacks emerged in the media. Despite the fact that the information was largely a whitewash, it was still a source of embarrassment for a regime that had naively become used to saying and doing what it liked by dancing on the graves of the victims of 9/11. To shut down the dissenters and provide the media with a distraction to fill the headlines, the Bush administration released a hoaxed terror alert. They cautioned that terrorists had hatched plans to attack targets such as stadiums, nuclear power plants, shopping centers, synagogues, apartment houses, subways, the Liberty Bell, the Brooklyn Bridge and other New York City landmarks.

What’s even more incredible than the hoax itself is that they openly admitted it! The Washington Times calmly reported:


“The Bush administration issued a spate of terror alerts in recent days to mute criticism that its national security team sat on intelligence warnings in the weeks before the September 11 attacks. The warnings, including yesterday's uncorroborated FBI report that terrorists might target the Statue of Liberty, quieted some of the lawmakers who said President Bush failed to act on clues of the September 11 attacks, although Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle yesterday reiterated his demand for an independent investigation. The latest alerts were issued "as a result of all the controversy that took place last week," said Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer, referring to reports that the president received a CIA briefing in August about terror threats, including plans by Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network to hijack U.S. commercial airliners.”

All the ‘conservative’ news outlets tried to bury the story by claiming that it was Dan Rather’s opinion that the White House was releasing fake terror alerts. They could then dismiss it as an empty liberal sideswipe, blatantly ignoring the Washington Times report and Ari Fleischer himself acknowledging it.

In January of 2003 FBI and CIA whistleblowers told Capitol Hill Blue that the White House was scripting phony terror alerts to maintain hysteria, upkeep President Bush’s approval ratings and milk extra defense funding. The report that five Pakistani men had entered the States via Canada and were planning on carrying out a dirty bomb or biological attack was completely conjured up by the Bush administration’s propaganda office. New York Harbor was shut down to visibly pump up the fear. One of the named suspects, Mohammed Asghar (pictured left), was tracked down to Pakistan by the Associated Press. He was a fat guy running a jewellers shop and had never even been to America.

World Net Daily commented:

“Other sources within the bureau and the Central Intelligence Agency said the administration is pressuring intelligence agencies to develop "something, anything" to support an array of non-specific terrorism alerts issued by the White House and the Department of Homeland Security…CHB reported that FBI and CIA sources said a recent White House memo listing the war on terrorism as a definitive political advantage and fund-raising tool is just one of many documents discussing how to best utilize the terrorist threat.”

Making hoax threats to carry out terrorist acts is punishable by law under H.R. 3209. This legislation outlines that any party doing so will be liable for a fine of up to $250,000 and a prison sentence of up to five years. So why aren’t the Democrats exposing the fact that the Bush administration is engaging in criminal activity? Democratic strategist Russ Barksdale gives us the answer, “Of course the White House is going to exploit the terrorism threat to the fullest political advantage, they would be fools not to. We'd do the same thing.”

Days after this story broke and began to gain more attention, ABC News sprang into action and whitewashed the story so it could be safely swept under the carpet. They reported that the fake terror alert was a ‘mistake’ as a result of an informant lying to the FBI, thus shifting the emphasis away from the FBI and CIA agents blowing the whistle on how the government was manufacturing evidence to heighten fear.

To legitimize SWAT cops in Darth Vader masks pushing people around on street corners, the government needed to convince the people that this was a successful method of fighting terrorism. So it was that we saw a wave of arrests and break-ups of ‘Al Qaeda cells’ from Spain to Italy to England. Maybe there really were dangerous mass killers around every corner and the government really just wanted to protect us. Not quite. These arrests were subject to a blaze of publicity and headlined the evening news. However, after investigations found no evidence to justify detaining those arrested, their release warranted only a paragraph in the back of the newspaper. A plot to release cyanide in the London Underground was ‘foiled by MI5’ and splashed across the front pages. The fact that no cyanide was ever found and most of the suspects were released within days was barely mentioned. Nine arrests were made under anti-terrorism laws and yet six of those detained were released within hours.

In late January 2003, 28 Pakistani men were arrested in a raid in the Italian city of Naples. The headlines shrieked that the men were plotting assassinations and bombings of NATO targets. They had maps of London, the U.S. consulate and American naval bases. They were a definite ‘Al-Qaeda terrorist cell’ in possession of 800 grams of explosives, enough to blow up a three-story building. Despite all this unfolding in Italy, it made the top story on both American and British news for two days.

Just two weeks later, the BBC quietly announced:

“An Italian judge has ordered the release of 28 Pakistani immigrants arrested on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks. The reasons for the order are unclear, but reports suggest little evidence was found against the men.”

And so the story vanished.



Now these blatantly fake terror alerts mean nothing. The US has cried wolf too many times in an attempt to milk the profit potential of fear for all it’s worth. Even after Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge announced that the Orwellian terrorism threat level had been raised to orange, one notch short of full out police state takeover, people still have yet to see any credible evidence of impending disaster. Armed police and the National Guard swarmed the streets of New York and Washington, helicopters and military jets patrolled the skies, Tony Blair considered putting troops on the streets of Britain, tanks were already rolling around Heathrow airport and the M25 motorway, and airport screeners made sure more 70-year-old men took their shoes off to be searched. TV networks rabidly hijacked the fear and revelled in the panic, highlighting interviews with people on the street commenting on how this downtown Beirut military occupation was acceptable because it was part of the ‘new America’ (or new Amerika). People were encouraged to buy first aid kits and duct tape to seal their windows.

Yet again, there was no reliable information to indicate a potential terrorist attack (one not carried out by the CIA that is). Many observed that the alarm was merely a show of force to frighten the people into supporting an impending war on Iraq. The government was again terrorizing the citizens.

The measures were put in place because the government had, once again, been lied to by their informants. Or so we’re told. And once again, ABC News rushed out to whitewash the story, stating,

“The informant described a detailed plan that an al Qaeda cell operating in either Virginia or Detroit had developed a way to slip past airport scanners with dirty bombs encased in shoes, suitcases, or laptops, sources told ABC NEWS. The informant reportedly cited specific targets of government buildings and Christian or clerical centers. "This piece of that puzzle turns out to be fabricated and therefore the reason for a lot of the alarm, particularly in Washington this week, has been dissipated after they found out that this information was not true," said Vince Cannistraro, former CIA counter-terrorism chief and ABC NEWS consultant.”

9/11 occurred at a time when the killers on the payroll in Washington were devising new and draconian restrictions on our freedom called the Patriot Act, which was passed shortly after that disaster. Now comes word that a new Patriot Act II has been devised in secret. There’s very little hope that our fear-ravaged climate will yield anything in the way of effective opposition to it's passage.


Again, fear keeps us in blind allegiance to everything the US Government wants to do. Don’t be a sheep!


We’ve seen the enemy and the enemy is us.

The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's
profitable to continue the illusion.
